Obverse was tough to get a nice shot of. Lustrous. I've added new pics.

Tough call with these photos.

Surfaces don't look original to me. That reflective glossy appearance is indicative of a light dip or overuse of MS70, in my experience. I'll say AU(58) Details, cleaned.

Somewhat washed-out pics, lots of cheek and nose chatter. I'll say AU-58. Not a choice specimen.

@Ty2020b, this is the way it was when I got it. There is a lot of rub so I put it at AU58. I only use MS70 when the coin has surfaces such as the 1920-D that I posted. I use Conserv if the coin has some haze on it.

Misaligned die strike
Uncirculated, MS63
There are two light scratches above and to the left of the date (1st photo)
I think some of the field disturbances may be die polishing lines but I'm no expert on Buffs

Photos make it difficult to tell surface originality but reverse appearance concerns me slightly, especially around FIVE CENTS

Oh I'm not saying you did it, I know you know better As for the previous owners..

Coin may appear different in hand, and I could very well be wrong. I've been wrong MANY times before

Are you sending this in for grading or going into your album?

@Ty2020b, It's in my album where most of them are. I think the only other ones I may slab are the 13-S T2 which I have, the 21-S and 24-S whenever I find them. They are tough to find with a full horn for a reasonable price. If ANACS has its' $10 special again, I may send some in.

jeez, I don't know. AU58 or MS64. comparing it to other higher end grades the fields below the buff do not appear original using these photos. so I'm at AU58 (details)
